The Young Democrats of Massachusetts are proud to endorse the following candidates for local office this year:

Bryan Barash – Ward 2 – Newton

The Young Democrats of Massachusetts are proud to endorse Bryan Barash for Ward 2 City Councilor in Newton. Bryan has been a critical part of the Young Democrats of Massachusetts for years, serving as the organization’s representative on the Democratic State Committee. In his work in building up and representing YDMA, he has shown the skills required for both strong constituent services and forward-thinking policy leadership. In his years of public service and advocacy, Bryan has shown himself to be passionate leader on issues that matter to younger people, from housing affordability to climate justice. He is the right person for the job, and we hope to be able to help him get elected on November 5th.

 

Cinda Danh – Ward 6 – Lynn

The Young Democrats of Massachusetts are proud to endorse Cinda Danh for Ward 6 City Councilor in Lynn.

She has been steadfast in her support for affordable housing, environmental justice, and comprehensive sex education. Not only is Cinda a passionate fighter for issues that matter to younger people, she has the experience and knowledge to translate that passion into real, meaningful action. For those reasons, and many more, we strongly support Cinda and will work to help her win the upcoming preliminary election on September 3rd and then the general election on November 5th.
